Kauakūkalahale Index

Papa kuhikuhi kikoʻī no nā kolamu ʻo Kauakūkalahale

Kauakūkalahale is a weekly Hawaiian language newspaper column, published in Honolulu newspapers since October 27, 2002. It first appeared in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin in the Sunday edition (until the last two weeks of 2008, Saturdays thereafter) until June 12, 2010, when the Honolulu Advertiser and the Star-Bulletin merged. It has been published in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser since June 18, 2010.

Edited by K. Laiana Wong and R. Kekeha Solis, of the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa, each column (appx. 600 words) includes a brief English synopsis. As of August 12, 2017, 772 weekly columns had appeared (not published Feb. 14, 2009, Jan. 2, 2016). Column topics are eclectic, usually related to the Hawaiian community, but including world news and sports, etc.

Over 100 authors have contributed, with over 500 of the articles divided among three, Kekeha Solis (233), Kūpopou (152), and Laiana Wong (192), (as of August 12, 2017).

All of the columns are reproduced here. They appeared online as well as in print, and almost all can also be accessed in the newspaper archives by clinking the newspaper name links (directly above the date). Some two dozen articles not available in the newspaper archives are shown here as microfilm scans of the newspaper columns, or have been transcribed from those scans, indicated by an asterisk (*) after the newpaper name. In those cases, clicking the newspaper name link will display the microfilm scan. (Star Bulletin archived pages from 9/28/2008-6/5/2010 are apparently "working copies" of the columns, and do not show the author's name, nor necessarily the correct publication date of the print edition. A few later online pages show similar errors and omissions. Authors and dates are shown correctly in the articles reproduced here.)

The latest crisis facing the Trump administration seems like a game of chicken, and Hawaiʻi could be the collision point.

Hawaiʻi Ponoʻī has been the state song since 1967 but has been around longer. King David Kalākaua wrote the lyrics to the melody and it was first sung by the Kawaiahaʻo Church Choir on Nov. 16, 1874, on Kalākauaʻs birthday. What most people donʻt know is that there are originally three full verses in the song. However, at the University of Hawaiʻi games, only the first verse and a repeated chorus are sung.

Each column will begin with a synopsis, in English. Topics will include current events, features and profiles. To honor the Star-Bulletin for beginning the Hawaiian column, Wong has written a "name" song, which used to be customary when a newspaper was established. The song is titled "Ka Hōkū Buletina." Generally speaking, the song is announcing the new publication, "kind of like saying a new kind of flavor for readers -- the Hawaiian language, the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people," Wong said. "Let it be known that this column is coming out and the Star-Bulletin is doing it and we would like you to subscribe," he said. "It's finally here." -- Frank Bridgewater, Editor

Lineal descendants and members of the Kaʻūpūlehu Marine Life Advisory Committee have asked us all to “try wait,” by initiating a fishing kapu, rest period, on a 3.6-mile stretch of shoreline from Kīkaua point to Kalaemanō. Combining Hawaiian traditional and customary practices with Western science, these dedicated members have developed a detailed plan to ensure the survival and proliferation of this fishery. This 10-year moratorium, codified by the DLNR, will allow these resources to self-heal and revitalize the quantity of fish to levels of sustainability similar to those that existed prior to Western fishing methods.

ʻAnela Texeira, Kuʻupua Silva
Hawaiʻi Ponoʻī has been the state song since 1967 but has been around longer. King David Kalākaua wrote the lyrics to the melody and it was first sung by the Kawaiahaʻo Church Choir on Nov. 16, 1874, on Kalākauaʻs birthday. What most people donʻt know is that there are originally three full verses in the song. However, at the University of Hawaiʻi games, only the first verse and a repeated chorus are sung. How important is it to know and sing the full song of Hawaiʻi?

What most people donʻt know is that there are originally three full verses in the song. However, at the University of Hawaiʻi games, only the first verse and a repeated chorus are sung. How important is it to know and sing the full song of Hawaiʻi?

Kauakūkalahale column debuts today The Honolulu Star-Bulletin today begins a weekly column in Hawaiian. Titled Kauakūkalahale (the rain that announces itself to the roof of every house) it will appear each Sunday on Page A2. The Hawaiian column will be coordinated by Laiana Wong and Kekeha Solis, of the Department of Hawaiian and Indo-Pacific Languages and Literatures at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Each column will begin with a synopsis, in English. Topics will include current events, features and profiles. To honor the Star-Bulletin for beginning the Hawaiian column, Wong has written a "name" song, which used to be customary when a newspaper was established. The song is titled "Ka Hōkū Buletina." Generally speaking, the song is announcing the new publication, "kind of like saying a new kind of flavor for readers -- the Hawaiian language, the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people," Wong said. "Let it be known that this column is coming out and the Star-Bulletin is doing it and we would like you to subscribe," he said. "It's finally here." -- Frank Bridgewater, Editor
